Being Open Mentally Can Lead to Liberation

“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.” -Wilma Rudolph

Be open to your surroundings whether it be within nature , around people you work with or within yourself . You have to be able to analyze and comprehend what’s going on so that you may understand and liberate yourself from the things within your life holding you back from reaching your full potential.
